Born on the charming island of Hydra, Greece, Elena Votsi finds inspiration in her historic homeland. Romantic and modern, her handmade pieces evoke elegance and sophistication. She lightheartedly refers to her jewelry as “toys”, which are reflections of her love, passion and the universe. Sharp, simple lines and geometric shapes are a hallmark of Votsi’s style. Believing gold is a symbol of power and beauty, she crafts all her jewelry from this precious metal. Her work made modern history when she was asked to redesign the Olympic medals for the 2004 games in Athens.
